Professionals view the World Cup as a marketing opportunity which will engender, hopefully, positive returns — for the economy in general and tourism in particular. Property should also gain, but more in the long run. From a business point of view it makes sense to look beyond the thousands of soccer fans expected. They will have a great time — and doubtless shift an amazing amount of beer and wors. But a significant portion of visitors will be well-heeled businessmen, sporting administrators and the high net worth individuals (HNWIs) to be found at any global fun feast. Then there are the Fifa officials, the media crews and last, but certainly not least, the players and coaches, themselves among the highest paid celebrities in the world. Tourism and hospitality professionals have long said that the real benefit of the Fifa 2010 Soccer World Cup will take years to filter through. Foreigners will have time to enjoy the beauty of South Africa and to take advantage of what the country offers. And one of these is value for money! Read more.
